E50: The Environmental Domain of Grief

Apr 19, 2024

Environmental changes can evoke powerful emotions and deeply impact our well-being. Scent cues, often linked to memories, can transport us back to specific moments, triggering unexpected waves of grief.

In the environmental domain of grief, Dr. Kirtly Jones explores the intricate relationship between our environment and the grieving process. The episode introduces the concept of solastalgia—a form of grief experienced when witnessing the transformation or deterioration of a beloved place—and the emotional toll of climate grief, highlighting the growing concern over the declining health of our planet and its impact on human well-being.
